One of the most enjoyable functions during any wedding is the Mehendi. Relatively more informal than the wedding ceremony or the reception, the Mehendi is marked by a great deal of singing and dancing and of course, the act of applying mehendi itself. This is the perfect occasion to wear something experimental and bold—with an element of fun in it.
Finding the right outfit is always a challenge, albeit a pleasurable one, for any woman. These days with a million options available, there's no one looking underdressed for a function —especially if it's your best friend’s or your cousin’s wedding. Of course, it’s the bride's big day and no one wants to steal the show. With the wide variety of outfits that are now available, here are the top picks from Junglee for any bride and her loved ones to look their best.
For the Bride
Traditionally Mehendi outfits were yellow and green lehengas or suits, but brides nowadays experiment with a brighter palette. Shades like orange, pink and purple are the now preferred favourites. Embroidered outfits accompanied with elaborate jewellery is the perfect look for a bride during the Mehendi ceremony.
Lehengas are great for the occasion - something lighter than what you'd wear for the wedding or recption though. Contrasting of colours in bright shades is a great idea, since it brings in an element of fun to the outfit; and this, after all, the essence of a Mehendi. From lipsticks to suits and kundans, The Junglee Bridal Store has it all. It's been designed to make your choices easy and for you to feel like a princess!
For the Mom
As much as maroon is the favoured colour for the mother, let’s go beyond and find more happy shades to look vibrant. Blues and greens are good alternatives. There is a great collection of ready-made blouses, embroidered sarees and also jewellery sure to catch your eye on Junglee.
For your cousins and friends
The first thing to remember if you are the bride's friend or cousin is to avoid wearing the same shade as the bride. Anarkalis are always the best choice for most Shaadi events; what's moree, they are comfortable and elegant too. A nice low back to the anarkali can add a modern edge to the outfit and highlight a well-toned back. A Lehenga is another option to try too, as long as it does not coincide with the bride’s attire. Keep the accessories simple if a lehenga is what you're planning on wearing, as most lehengas are fairly ornate.
